Syria – Attempted murder of Syrian journalist Mohammed Zahir al Sherqat in Gaziantep (April 10, 2016)


France condemns the attempted murder of Syrian journalist and human rights activist Mohammed Zahir al Sherqat in Gaziantep on April 10.

We pay tribute to the work of this journalist, who denounced the barbaric acts committed by Daesh. We extend our best wishes to him for his speedy recovery.

Following the murder of journalist Naji al-Jarf on December 27 in Gaziantep, we are concerned about the safety of Syrian journalists.

Full light must be shed on the circumstances behind these crimes, the perpetrators of which must be brought to justice.
